Puccini Festival to celebrate his centenary

November 2024 marks the centenary of Giacomo Puccini’s death. The famous composer’s work is inextricably linked to the Monte-Carlo Opera since he composed La Rondine for the Monaco Opera in 1917. The composer will be celebrated at the Puccini Centenary Festival in November. It will showcase the Italian maestro’s ‘greatest hits’, including La Bohème, Tosca and La Rondine.

Rhinegold with the Prince’s Musicians

Another exceptional event of the season is the performance of Wagner’s Rhinegold, with the Prince’s Musicians performing on period instruments. Directed by Davide Livermore, the show promises to be “spectacular” according to the new season brochure.

Exclusive concerts and recitals

In addition to operas, the season will also include a series of concerts and recitals featuring internationally renowned soloists and ensembles. Not to be missed: A Tribute to Sinatra, sung by Vittorio Grigolo, a recital by Benjamin Bernheim, including a version of Berlioz’s Nuits d’été for tenor and piano and Monteverdi’s Vespers for the Blessed Virgin, performed in Monaco Cathedral.
